subtle, piercing humor

Melissa McCarthy is literary fraudster best-selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover), Lee Israel in this biopic from the director of The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Based on Israel’s memoir.

Lee Israel made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant, Gosford Park).

one of the most entertaining crime stories in literary history.
